Bodaboda operators from Malindi in Kilifi county are now asking the office of the Inspector General of Police Joseph Boinet to immediately transfer all traffic officers attached to Malindi over alleged corruption.

Speaking in Malindi, Elijah Ngowa, the Malindi bodaboda spokesperson said that Malindi traffic officers have become an impediment for bodaboda operators in the area.

Ngowa said "the officers are now shamelessly asking for a bribe in the broad daylight. Whenever a motorcycle rider is arrested, it has become a normal thing for the officers to delay to arraign the lawbreaker in court so as to source for the bribe."

“They have turned bodaboda operators a source of their income despite having their salaries. They are overdoing it, they are always targetting bodabodas whenever they are on the roads,” he added.

The operators said that traffic officers had overstayed in the area, hence need for new officers who will enforce the law fairly.

However, Malindi traffic base commander George Naibei refuted the claims and insisted that traffic rules must be followed to the latter.
